APECS International Online Conference 2022: All hands on deck!
Inclusive knowledge on polar regions as a pathway for sustainable future
The idiom “All hands on deck” reflects the efforts that are currently needed to address the major environmental challenges of the current century. Knowledge in all forms and of all natures represent an essential component for designing a desirable and sustainable future both for Mankind and the Earth, along with the means to achieve such horizons. Knowledge inclusiveness, however, has not always been a concern in scientific and academic circles, although this could improve the ways we do research and interact with the rest of the society.
For the 2022 edition of its International Online Conference, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) has thus chosen to dedicate a 24-hour online conference, on 18 May 2022, for sharing experiences and knowledge on Polar and Alpine regions from various perspectives.
- The conference contains five sessions drawing on multiple disciplines from the social to the natural sciences:
- Voices from Alpine and Polar regions
- Bridging knowledge from Polar ocean beneficiaries
- Polar regions in motion
- Methods and ethics in polar research
- Advances in cryospheric sciences
We decided to make natural, humanities and social sciences meet in three of the five sessions (i.e., bridging knowledge from Polar ocean beneficiaries; polar regions in motion; methods and ethics in polar research) and retained transversal, open themes so as to allow a wide array of discussions. We also dedicated sessions to particular realms such as the ocean, the coasts and the cryosphere.
The APECS International Online Conference 2022 is proud to be an Ocean Decade endorsed activity.
